RHS Bronze Medal

July 21, 2022
What a day yesterday was. We received a bronze medal from the RHS judges and were inundated with queries about the garden.  The garden had survived the heat and the dry wind, what an achievement.

We had lots of positive feedback from visitors. One person commenting " Your garden inspired me in 2019 , this is even more inspirational", another " I wish my garden was like that, that's how a garden should be".

A great deal of excitement all round. Brilliant!!!
